16 candidates file for the 1st Congressional District Special Election
16 Republican candidates have filed in the special election for South Carolina’s 1st U.S. Congressional District. The candidates will meet in the March 19, 2013 Republican Primary. A runoff (if necessary) would be held on April 2, 2013 and the general election is May 7, 2013.
“We have a strong field of candidates to replace our Republican rockstar, Sen. Tim Scott. After all votes are cast, our party will stand united behind the primary winner. I have no doubt that a South Carolina Republican will continue to represent the 1st district in Congress,” said SCGOP Chairman Chad Connelly.
